The 2018 Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc Napa Valley is a legendary white wine for the region. Still championing the wine after all these years, it only seems to get better. Refreshing aromatics of lime blossom, grapefruit and granny smith apples. Fruit flavors follow on a rounded palate that is loaded with character and depth. Bright acid frames the wine leading to a crisp finish.

Robert Mondavi founded his namesake winery in 1966 at the age of 53. He wasn't flush with cash, but he had a big dream. He envisioned that a more gracious lifestyle can be lead through the appreciation of wine, food and art. When he came to Oakville in the Napa Valley he saw the land upon which he could build his dream winery and make wines to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best wines from around the globe. Well, the Italian farm boy made good, launching what would become the first major winery in the Napa Valley after the end of Prohibition. Robert Mondavi Winery revolutionized the world of American wine by focusing on quality grape cultivation and embracing hospitality as a part of the wine business. At their Oakville estate, styled in homage to the missions of early California, the warm spirit of hospitality is ever present. Drop by, they'd love to see you.

Wine Spectator

Lime sherbet, peach and dried mango flavors are succulent and intense, with details of dried ginger, green tea, lemon zest and tangerine. Powerful, refreshing and focused through the finish. Drink now.

This has a fresh nose of grapefruit zest, passion fruit, flint and subtle herbs. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Delicate and creamy fruit with a precise finish. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast

With 13% Sémillon in the mix, this lovely white is stony with a robust texture and creaminess to its richness of green apple and lemon. The oak is integrated and complementary.
